Here are Diane, Janet and Pat preparing to dye.
Here is some fabric that has had dye poured over it.
Here are some of the dye drippings. I had a bunch of silk scraps given to me by the director of Surface Design – they were left overs from her work. I put these scraps in the drippings and got some of my most interesting pieces!
Now, here is where we went off on a tangent and didn’t follow directions. We just laid the fabrics out on the grass to dry and didn’t let them batch. This is what happens when a group of amateurs ignore the directions!!
And look at this – splatter dyed feet!!
Tomorrow, I will wash my fabric and see how bad it was not to do the batching. I think the colors will not be as intense. It was a fun time and so relaxing. Oh, and here is the best part, we got to meet Gemma who patiently observed the day’s activities.
